At last we have a solid political solution to the Brexit issue: psychic Uri Geller is going to put a stop to it telepathically. Hey, if you can bend spoons with your mind, what's a little bending of political will by comparison?!

This indictment of Morris Dees & the SPLC is damning, but if you think this could be their demise think again. With nearly half a billion dollar endowment they can survive a lot. I've been hearing about the demise of Scientology for year. Still going.

A new project has commenced. A Teaching Company Great Course on Conspiracies. This is what I have in my personal library. Email or DM me your suggestions of what other sources I should consult. Conspiracy theories real & imagined and why people believe them (or not). Thank you.

I signed a deal with Amazon/Audible/Teaching Company to develop a new course on conspiracies and conspiracy theories, so I just treated myself to a new bike, 1st in 6 years. Sweet carbon fiber ride, disc brakes, vibration absorbers, wild paint job. Big fun on test ride today.

Just so you know I'm not a @jordanbpeterson toady. I disagree with him on many topics, for example, his comments in today's NP article: I don't think we're "unmoored" & I welcome the decline of religion! BUT: it's a debatable point & Jordan's ideas matter!

I've read @jordanbpeterson 's 2 books, listened to many of his lectures & read most critiques of him. I have yet to find anything indicating he's a white supremacist, racist, bigot, misogynist, anti-Semite, etc. If you're looking to demonize someone you've got the wrong guy.

If you think @jordanbpeterson / 12 Rules for Life explains the New Zealand massacre you've lost your mind. If you think Cambridge U students would be harmed hearing Jordan's ideas, you shouldn't be in the education business. This is getting insane & has to stop. https://t.co/YfqEEkorry

Why would anyone fake a hate crime? @MrAndyNgo nails it: "Because of the mainstreaming of academia’s victimhood culture, we are now in a place where we place more value on being a victim than on being heroic, charitable, or even kind." https://t.co/a5WkGm10Kq

When I debate Christians, Jews, Creationists, climate deniers etc. they are unfailingly polite, respectful, thoughtful, discerning, & listen to my arguments. Far Left SJWs do not. They simply look for fault & pounce.

If you think Michael Cohen's testimony was explosive, Alex Jones just told @joerogan there's an alien base in San Francisco to make intergalactic deals, we took over British government in 1930, government is pumping "astronaut-level" humans with DMT...
